While the coronavirus pandemic has limited the number of people who have appeared in court, it has not meant a total shutdown.

The number of people put behind since the start of lockdown has been less than what the public may be used to, but police and judges alike are still working hard to bring justice to the world.

That includes Hampshire Constabulary, who since the start of May, have made public the sentencing of 11 individuals.

We have compiled a list of all 11 of these perpetrators, including what their jail term was and what they did to deserve it.
